That’s exactly what David Wilk tried to do in an oral/written ruling from this past Monday. Lets begin with Judge WIlk’s beginning. Wilke attended Hamline University School

  1. So you won’t name the other because you don’t know the allegation but yet you apparently don’t know the allegation here but have no problem printing his name and photo. Wonder why?????

    1. They should post his picture he assaulted my daughter too. I hope they put him under the jail and throw away the key?

    2. They should show his face this is not his 1st, 2nd nor 3rd he has done this many times he has not been caught because his family and In-Laws keep covering things up to protect him and his wife. His wife knows what she is married too she’s just as sick as him. Never leave a child with this family for one minutes.

  2. Couple of questions and comments…..

    1. What exactly did he do? I understand not naming all parties especially if there’s a victim but why not name the action/grievance?

    2. Are you going to mention that he has had multiple affairs at work with teachers, lower level staff, and the vice principal (who is not there anymore but worked there for 5+ years -J. Knight)

    3. Are you going to mention that he has been “caught up” in the past but his family member named Tamara Coleman protected him every single time?

    1. They should post his picture he assaulted my daughter too. I hope they put him under the jail and throw away the key. Tamara Coleman and Pastor Wilcoxon she go with him they help him cover his nasty behavior up?

    1. He is just worst than R. Kelly he victims kids in church and schools. He is a sick twisted individual.

    2. His in-laws continue to protect him and same the child. They should all go to jail and throw away the key?

  3. And a security guard was just arrested there. And Shaunell gross us another piece of shot who was a fuller supporter. Kusd is a shit hole

  4. Church trustee my my my with numerous sexual allegations. You going straight to hell. Your father-n-law Pastor need to nail you to the alter.

    1. The pastor is the one protecting him. The pastor should be fired or voted out and place in jail too for covering things up.

  5. Can the people get updated on this case? The public has the right to know if this alleged predator is still on the streets getting paid by the state to be a menacing freeloader.
